a person who cares alot about the lives and well-being of animals so much that they abstain from eating all animal products and also do not buy any products which are tested on innocent animals.

Vegans follow a natural diet of only vegetables, seeds, fruit, legumes, etc.

They have the same selection of non-vegans, only the food is made with those listed in the "diet" part.

A vegan diet can decrease your risk of cancer, lung disease, obesity, and high cholesterol.

Meat substitutes can be just as tasty as regular meat, depending upon your tastes.

Someone who does not use any animal products (which is near impossible). It has been proven that to be a vegan one must have a ridiculous superiority complex. This is often mistaken by the vegan and other vegans as enlightenment. This massive ego stimulation often results in insulting "meat-eaters" undeservedly, and the delusion that they are actually making a change. This also involves constant bragging about how much they love the lifestyle.
1. "If you are not a vegan, you are a terrible, terrible person incapable of feeling compassion or love because you can stomach the thought of killing a cow. Hold on, I have to finish my tofu and soy milk."
2. "As a vegan, I would sooner kill one human infant than two cows."
(Note: Number 2 is a direct quote from a vegan I know.)

being vegan means that you do not consume any animal products including meat, eggs, diary, etc. or animal byproducts and do not wear any animal products like leather, wool, silk, etc.

and i just wanted to add in that not all vegans are nazi's we are all cool people and just because we are vegan does not mean that we dont like people who eat animals or use animal products. it is just our dietary choice we believe that you shouldn't eat or harm animals. i think it would be great to see more vegans but most of us dont try to push it on anyone. for example both my roommates eat meat and i am vegan and we get along great i respect their decision and they respect mine
john- hey man would you like some steak

vegan-no thanks man i am vegan,thanks though

john-aw, sorry man, i bet that is hard i could never do it

vegan-no it really isn't that hard at all, you should just give it a try, if you dont like it dont do it. but it is healthier and it saves the animals

john- no thanks man i like meat too much.

vegan-oh its cool, its not for everyone i guess

A term used to describe someone that is being oversensitive and/or pedantic. Named after vegans, who are usually quite overprotective when people have a valid opinion on their lifestyle, and are just plain hipsters- with an extra dose of cuntyness.
Dave- Hey Courtney, wanna go out for a drink with me sometime?
